Anna Maria Horner came to my guild a couple of weeks ago but I wasn’t able to attend her talk or class (at first because we had camping plans, and then because instead of camping I was
dying of scarlet fever had a raging case of strep throat). To make myself feel better about the whole business I made a multi-tasker tot (without the benefit of the class). Let me tell you, there were moments where I was very sad not to have a class for this one. I think it was step 8 where I had to bring in a ringer to figure out what in the heck was going on (my ringer was Nic, and we got it done).
This is the part where I tell you that I was inspired by the patchwork nursery versery print to use a bunch of different fabrics in this one. That part is a lie. I was inspired by the price of the nursery versery prints not to buy any more of them than entirely necessary, and then I had to punt with what I had on hand that coordinated and was big enough after washing/shrinking. I’m pretty sad that the lining ends up showing up on the outside of the bag (you fold over the top of the bag to create the strap casing), but I’ll get over it. The orange polka dot straps and pink floral lining are both from Children at Play.
Overall, I like the bag. And I will definitely like it more in April than I do at the start of fall.
